It fleshes out changes in a 2012 law that requires makers of important prescription drugs to notify the agency of interruptions in production that might disrupt supply. The rule, which is open to public comment for 60 days, applies for the first time to makers of “biological medicines,” which are produced in microorganisms, animal or plant cells.
